Chemistry of Hazardous Materials, 5/e

 

Eugene Meyer

 

This new edition of Chemistry of Hazardous Materials remains an important basic chemistry text for Emergency Responders with expanded coverage on many essential hazardous materials topics, such as: the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemical Substances (GHS), terrorist threats relative to biological, chemical, and radioactive agents, updated best practices for the handling and storage of hazardous materials, new end-of-chapter exercises, updated D.O.T. regulations, information on warning labels and material safety sheets for use by Emergency Responders, and new lists of hazardous materials. The author’s reorganization of chapter material in this edition is more conducive to student learning and will guide the non-scientist and inexperienced student through the process of understanding chemical properties that make materials hazardous. This new edition continues the successful presentation of earlier editions by emphasizing the hazardous materials regulations established by the OSHA, the U.S. D.O.T., and the EPA.
